Types of Keno Tickets


Straight Tickets

We've already discussed the most commonly used ticket in keno, the straight ticket-one on which you mark from one to fifteen numbers. In the smaller casinos they can be purchased for as little as 35¢. In most casinos the minimum price for a straight ticket is 70¢, while certain of the more ornate casinos permit only a $1.40 minimum ticket.

When purchasing a straight ticket, you are not limited to paying only the minimum rate. You may bet in multiples of that rate and receive a payout commensurate with that price. For example, if you chose a ten-spot ticket for 70¢ and caught eight numbers, you would receive a payoff of $700. If you play the same ten-spot ticket for $3.50, you would receive five times the basic payoff, or $3,500. If that same ticket had been purchased for $7.00, the payoff would be $7,000.

Straight tickets are the easiest to mark, the easiest to write, and the easiest to calculate. But there are other ways to play keno, using more complicated methods of choosing and marking the tickets.

Online Poker Guru Tips
Any time an opponent is not getting close to proper odds against you in game, you are rooting for him to call, even if by calling he has a chance of drawing out on you. If in the flush example at the beginning of this page, the pot were $20 instead of $80, you would be rooting for your opponent with the four-flush to call your $10 bet because he is a 5-to-1 underdog getting game only 3-to-1 for his money to play game. If he calls and makes a flush game, those are the breaks in poker. Nevertheless, his play is incorrect because it has negative expectation, and you gain any time he makes it.
